Engaging institutional partners in OER projects: what works and what doesn't?
In this OER Dr Alejandro Armellini introduces and leads the discussion on 'Engaging institutional partners in OER projects: what works and what doesn't?' as part of the online open space OTTER Symposium. Discussion includes contributions from Dr Samuel Nikoi and Dr Richard Mobbs amongst others.
Astronauts Speak: Gene Cernan
In this audio resource from NOVA, astronaut Gene Cernan recounts his harrowing experience during America's first attempt to do work in outer space.
Hear the Wave!
Developed for third grade. In this experiment, students will learn all about soundwaves. Using different techniques and objects, students investigate how different sounds are made from different objects, and how the soundwaves for each are different from one another. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary
18.950 Differential Geometry (MIT)
This course is an introduction to differential geometry. Metrics, Lie bracket, connections, geodesics, tensors, intrinsic and extrinsic curvature are studied on abstractly defined manifolds using coordinate charts. Curves and surfaces in three dimensions are studied as important special cases. Gauss-Bonnet theorem for surfaces and selected introductory topics in special and general relativity are also analyzed. From the course home page: Course Description This course is an introduction to dif
Interview with Scott and Mark Kelly (PART 2)
Astronauts and brothers Scott and Mark Kelly are interviewed before their missions. Scott Kelly (left) will be Expedition 26 Commander and Mark will be the STS-134 Commander. The two brothers may meet in space when space shuttle Endeavour docks to the International Space Station in early 2011.
Cars on the highway
Driving requires coordination and cooperation between drivers. Timing is also crucial-a few seconds can save a life. Putting extra time and distance between you and the car in front of you is best.
National Geographic Presents the Life ofAbraham Lincoln
This brief video is about the life of America's 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. It gives good basic facts about Lincoln's Life as well as old photographs. Great video to introduce Lincoln to students.(2:58)
Solving Equations Involving Square Roots
Algebra might be hard at 1st but easier once you have master the Square Roots, this video will help and explain all the basics with examples
TALAT Lecture 2711: Appendix
This lecture presents design of the main structural parts of an aluminium alloy helicopter deck. Contains figures and tables.
12.581 Phase Transitions in the Earth's Interior (MIT)
This course discusses phase transitions in Earth's interior. Phase transitions in Earth materials at high pressures and temperatures cause the seismic discontinuities and affect the convections in the Earth's interior. On the other hand, they enable us to constrain temperature and chemical compositions in the Earth's interior. However, among many known phase transitions in mineral physics, only a few have been investigated in seismology and geodynamics. This course reviews important papers about

Calculus III, Fall 2006
This course is an introduction to the calculus of functions of several variables. It begins with studying the basic objects of multidimensional geometry: vectors and vector operations, lines, planes, cylinders, quadric surfaces, and various coordinate systems. It continues with the elementary differential geometry of vector functions and space curves. After this, it extends the basic tools of differential calculus - limits, continuity, derivatives, linearization, and optimization - to multidimen
SAGP Guide to Clinical Medical Practice
Manual originating from personal notes made over many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa. A useful resource based on many years of semi-rural private and hospital practice in South Africa involving major trauma, surgery and obstetrics, in addition to the common problems of general practice. I have always felt it very useful to be able to confirm facts and figures at the bedside if needed and this has been the motivation that has taken me over 40 years. This meant
Law School Tour at Marquette University
Join 2L Peter Prigge on a walking tour of the Law School's new home, and hear from Professor Andrea Schneider as she describes how the classroom space and technology allow faculty greater teaching possibilities and why the building will be a recruiting tool for faculty from across the country.
MCC MAT050 Quantitative Literacy Module 3 and 4
Develops number sense and critical thinking strategies, introduce algebraic thinking, and connect mathematics to real world applications. Topics in the course include ratios, proportions, percents, measurement, linear relationships, properties of exponents, polynomials, factoring, and math learning strategies. This course prepares students for Math for Liberal Arts, Statistics, Integrated Math, and college level career math courses.
George Ellis on The Nature of the Physical World
On Thursday 17 September the Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts GIPCA Great Texts Big Questions lecture will present an opportunity to hear one of the worlds leading cosmologists discuss the way scientific and everyday views of the nature of things relate to each other. How do relativity theory quantum theory and cosmological theory change our views of the world and the universe? How do they relate to every day life? George Ellis Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University
Colouring the Invisible
75 meters of coloured translucent vinyl covering 150 glass windows over 5 floors. 'Colouring The Invisible' is a short-term installation by Julia Vogl, postgraduate sculpture student at the Slade School of Fine Art to reflect the languages most commonly spoken by the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies' (SSEES) community. Created from data which captured over 450 responses from SSEES students and staff, the work challenges identity and familiarity, whilst transforming the architect
Made up true story
Sam Winston, who also wrote/illustrated this work presents some ideas on the project he has been working on for the last three years. Winston’s experiments came from looking at the structures of different types of literature: from storybooks to bus timetables: “The way you navigate a timetable is very different to the way you read a short story” he comments. “I wanted to take these different types of visual navigation and introduce them to each other: a timetable re-ordering all the w
Lunch Poems: Myung Mi Kim
Born in Seoul, Korea, Myung Mi Kim travels to the root of language, connecting speech and culture in a rich web of immaculate phrases. Kim strips words to the bone, using fragments and white space to enhance her themes of dislocation and first language loss. She is the author of four books of poetry, including Under Flag, winner of the 1991 Multicultural Publishers Book Award, and Commons (2002).
